Luxury Scents of the Summer

Orebella’s Salted Muse

The just-launched fragrance line from supermodel Bella Hadid blends one of summertime’s most prominent scents — sea salt! — with pink pepper, an olive tree accord and lavender twist at the heart, finishing with a hint of woods and crisp amber. Per launch intel, Hadid’s love affair with fragrances began creating her own essential oil blends, growing lavender and distilling oils on her family farm. She also offers another vacation-ready fragrance with Blooming Fire which leans heavily on the Tahitian monoi flower and exotic patchouli. ($100 for 100 ml, orebella.com)

Dioriviera

No summertime scent roundup, particularly in the South of France, is complete without Dior. Fragrance creative director Francis Kurkdjian is the nose behind the line which was inspired by a stop in Provence in a field below the La Colle Noire estate. “The southern sun was shining, the May roses were in bloom, and a warm breeze was blowing through the leaves of a majestic fig tree, my sole companion. This magical moment was seared into my memory, and in that very instant, the desire to create a perfume arose.” ($330 for 4.25 oz., dior.com)

Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche Eau de Parfum

The Chance line from the luxury house’s fragrance division offers many fresh options that would be a suitable fit for summertime but the Eau Fraîche option is THR’s pick for the sizzling season. It “opens with the zesty freshness of a citron accord, then unveils a round and luminous jasmine heart,” per Chanel, finishing with a deep and ambery teak wood note. ($215 for 5 oz., chanel.com)

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino

One can’t go wrong with anything bearing the name Tom Ford and this fragrance is no exception. The iconic designer took inspiration from the “sparkling blue waters, cool breezes and the verdant foliage of the Italian Riviera” to craft the scene that is a fusion of citrus oils — Tunisian Neroli, Sicilian lemon, winter yellow mandarin and Italian bergamot — with undertones of lavender, orange flower, rosemary and amber.

Ferragamo’s Signorina Unica

The newest edition to the luxury house’s Signorina line, Unica was crafted in collaboration with Jerome Epinette of Robertet. It opens with citrus notes and follows with a fresh and breezy Italian Riviera Marine Accord. Perfect for a trip up the Italian coast, there are hints of white azaleas and Italian tiramisu, which may seem like a wild pairing but is designed to create “an iconic floral gourmand combination that exudes sophistication and indulgence,” per Ferragamo. ($122 for 3.4 oz, ferragamo.com)
